As the years progress, I’ve had the pleasure of watching Ounce of Hope’s delta-8 gummies evolve. As the writer here, I want to expand on my original review of the brand’s bestselling treats.
Ounce of Hope continuously strives to improve its products, and the latest delta-8 THC gummies truly raise the bar. Get a firsthand explanation for how they taste, how they’ll make you feel, and then some! Let’s dive in.
What are Delta-8 Gummies?
Before we delve into my review, let’s explore what makes our delta-8 gummies special. Delta-8 THC derives from hemp. It offers a milder high compared to delta-9 THC found in cannabis. Studies suggest several potential benefits, including neuroprotective, analgesic, appetite-stimulating, anxiolytic, and antiemetic effects.
We make all our products stand out by growing our hemp through aquaponics and using only natural ingredients. Our gummies stand out with distinct flavors to completely disguise the pungent taste of hemp.
Plus, we freeze our gummies (and other edibles) before shipping to preserve freshness. Then, we ship them surrounded by cold packs to stay at a more ideal temperature along the way. Battling the heat all year round is something Ounce of Hope’s mastered.
Potential Delta-8 Gummies Benefits
One of the remarkable aspects of delta-8 gummies is their efficacy in emphasizing the effects of delta-8 THC. Thanks to their faster breakdown in the stomach, gummies offer a more efficient way to experience the benefits.
Delta-8 Gummies Recommended Serving Size
A typical serving size for delta-8 gummies from Ounce of Hope is 1 gummy. That’s 25mg delta-8 THC. Take half a gummy if you’re new to delta-8. (Maybe even just take a quarter if you’re new to cannabis, in general!)
However, I have a particularly high tolerance for cannabis products. Knowing that, during my last review, I had… many more gummies than the suggested serving size.
Here’s what went down last time:
“I have a relatively high tolerance for cannabis products, so wasn’t expecting anything life-changing.
That’s why trying delta-8 THC through these gummies was such a pleasant surprise. I felt a calm, rolling “stoned” feeling while still able to keep track of my bearings. I didn’t feel out of control, or couch-locked, or even “high” in the way dank weed can make you feel. Instead, I still felt fully conscious and in control, but also relaxed and calm, almost euphoric.
The high is familiar and welcoming. It doesn’t control you, but it does make you feel stimulated — like you could go do something very productive and feel accomplished!”
So, eating more than the recommended serving size worked for me – but still, tread with caution. You can always eat more as time passes! However, you can’t take back eating them once you’ve eaten them. The gummies kick in relatively fast (especially compared to other edibles), so eat one and be patient.
Trying Ounce of Hope’s Latest Delta-8 Gummies
As the brand’s writer, I had the privilege of trying our previous delta-8 gummies. However, before writing this review, I took a break from them to ensure a fresh experience with our latest offering. This review will provide insights into how the evolved version compares to its predecessor.
It helps that I’ve tried them before and took a pause. Now, my experience is as fresh as possible while still being able to compare the two. A win-win!
The Delta-8 Gummies Experience — My Whole Trip
Now, let’s dive into the heart of the review – my personal experience with our delta-8 gummies. I’ll take you through each stage after consumption.
What I Feel Immediately After Taking a Delta-8 Gummy
Well, it wasn’t “a” delta-8 gummy for me, but you get the point.
Generally speaking, edibles are known for how long they take to kick in. Depending on the extract, some edibles require the cannabinoids inside them to pass through the liver before metabolizing them. That helps explain why it sometimes feels like it takes hours before an edible actually kicks in.
Personally, edibles don’t typically hit me very fast. Sometimes, edibles with cannabis extracts may not even have an effect for me — at least, not a noticeable one.
So, I’m always impressed by how quickly these gummies take effect for me.
I was even patient to ensure I wasn’t just feeling some placebo. I wanted to make sure I felt genuine and authentic, so I paid special attention to everything happening to me.
Within the first 15 minutes, I felt like the gummy might start taking effect. It wasn’t instant, but I felt a slow, gradual relaxation wash over me.
30 Minutes After
It’s an interesting feeling, getting stoned on delta-8 THC. It intensifies slowly as the minutes pass, gradually transforming into a soothing high. Still, I can complete my tasks for the day and feel productive along the way. As time progresses, I’m able to focus more. I feel energized and euphoric – a thrilling combination.
2 Hours After Taking Delta-8 Gummies
The clear high delta-8 THC gummies give me is apparent at this point.
What’s truly fascinating to note is the lack of rapid heart rate. When smoking, my heart may beat a little faster sometimes. If I’m drinking coffee with my bud, I may start to perspire slightly, and that combination can even stimulate minor anxiety.
With these gummies, I feel none of that. Instead, I feel stoned – but not cloudy-headed. It’s like the high of cannabis without the intense fogginess.
4 Hours After
I could still feel the chill high even 4 hours into my second delta-8 THC official review. Edibles don’t typically last that long for me, so I’m always impressed when Ounce of Hope’s gummies. The potent treats linger in my system for an enjoyably relaxing evening.
The Next Day
It’s like I never ate any gummies that sent me on a mildly stoned trip. There are no aftereffects or lingering fogginess. There’s no cannabis hangover.
What Do They Taste Like?
This is one of the best parts because Ounce of Hope’s gummies come in multi-packs of six distinct flavors. Taste strawberry, watermelon, blue raspberry, mango, and pink lemonade in each container.
And no matter the flavor, there’s no artificial or hempy aftertaste. What a win! The texture is a pleasant, soft, and easily chewable gummy. Overall, these delta-8 gummies hit all the right notes. It’s no wonder they’re a bestseller.
Delta-8 Gummies Packaging & Shipping
Because it doesn’t hold up well in heat with how gummy the texture is, Ounce of Hope freezes the gummies before shipping and during the hot summer months, ships them with cold packs so they stay their absolute freshest.
What’s In Our Delta-8 Gummies?
Ounce of Hope’s gummies contain hemp-derived cannabinoids, a pectin blend, and other natural ingredients. With only 10 calories per gummy, they’re also a perfect low-calorie option. It makes it especially tempting to eat more than one!

Delta-8 Gummies FAQs
What do delta-8 gummies do for you?
Delta-8 gummies can provide a range of effects similar to delta-9 THC, which is the common THC in weed. However, delta 8 is reported to be less potent and has a milder psychoactive experience. Users often describe the effects as relaxing, uplifting, and even euphoric. Delta-8 THC interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system, potentially offering pain relief, appetite stimulation, and a sense of overall well-being.
Are delta-8 gummies a good high?
Yes, delta 8 gummies can produce a good high. It’ll likely be less intense for you than the high associated with the delta-9 THC found in traditional cannabis. The experience also varies depending on many factors, such as dosage, individual tolerance, and personal sensitivity to cannabinoids.
We advise you to start with a low dosage or serving size and gradually increase as you need to. That way, you discover your desired level of euphoria and relaxation with ease.
Are delta-8 gummies stronger than CBD?
Yes, delta-8 gummies are stronger in terms of psychoactive effects compared to CBD products. CBD doesn’t produce a high as it’s non-intoxicating. Meanwhile, delta-8 THC can induce psychoactive effects, although they’ll be milder than the THC in pot. However, the potency of gummies can vary depending on their concentration and the dosage of delta-8 in the product.
What are the negative side effects of delta-8?
While delta-8 THC is generally well-tolerated, it can have potential side effects similar to those of delta-9 THC. Common side effects may include dry mouth, red eyes, increased heart rate, drowsiness, and temporary memory impairment. These effects may vary among individuals. It’s essential to consume delta-8 gummies responsibly and in moderation.
How long does it take for a delta-8 gummy to kick in?
The time it takes for a delta-8 gummy to kick in can vary from person to person. Factors such as metabolism, dosage, and individual body chemistry can influence the onset time. Typically, it can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours for the effects to be noticeable.
We recommend you start with a small serving size and be patient. Allow ample time for the gummy to take effect before you consider consuming more.
